10X DIY offers flexibility for delivery whether your students are in school or learning remotely, led by a teacher or doing it without supervision.

10X DIY is a hypothetical exercise whereby young people complete the first two weeks of the 10X Challenge without producing or selling goods. It can be used as a stand-alone project or as a way for students to kick start their 10X ideas so they are ready to start in the summer term.

Using the 10X DIY Guide and the documents below students can imagine, remotely research and plan a business that starts with a hypothetical £10, creating the logo and a sales pitch along the way!
